Abstract

The resolution of the strong CP problem postulates a new dark matter candidate known as the axion. Axions can couple with photons in the presence of a strong magnetic field. Light shining through wall method (LSW) uses a lead wall inside a cavity with a strong magnetic field to coupled axions with photons then detect axions when the axions cross the lead wall and convert back to photons. The axion signal and thermal noise are simulated and by comparing the simulated signals after they have been rectified and integrated, the sensitivity of the planned experiment was determined.
